Crunchyroll is publishing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the manga's first volume:
Ashiya has spent the first seven days of high school stuck in the infirmary because of a yōkai attaching itself to him. He ends up asking the owner of a small tea room called "Mononokean" for help. This is volume 1 of the mysterious stories involving the very morose owner of Mononokean guiding the yōkai that happened to wander into this world go to the next world.
Wazawa launched the manga in Square Enix's Gangan Online web manga site in 2013. Square Enix published the manga's fifth compiled book volume last November, and it will publish the sixth volume in June.
